Each of the 2010 Silver Austrian Philharmonic Coins in this listing are in BU condition. Coins in BU condition exhibit no signs of wear and tear, but are not without flaws. You may notice minor flaws such as breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks from the coining process at the mint.
Silver Austrian Philharmonic coins marked the first expansion of the Austrian Philharmonic bullion coin series with their introduction in 2008. The coins use the same design that has been in use since 1989 on the Gold Philharmonic. The Austrian Mint’s Chief Engraver, Thomas Pesendorfer, is the man behind the design of these popular coins.
Austrian Philharmonic coins debuted at a time when the Eurozone common currency did not exist, so original gold coins in the series had Austrian shillings as their face value. The Silver Austrian Philharmonic and its counterparts struck from 2002 onward all have a face value in Euros.
On the obverse of all Silver Austrian Philharmonic coins is the image of the pipe organ found inside the Golden Music Hall, also known as the Musikverein. Located in the neighborhood of Innere Stadt, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra plays home concerts here in the capital city of Vienna, Austria.
The reverse of all 2010 Silver Austrian Philharmonic Coins features a collection of the instruments commonly used by members of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. Included in the depiction you’ll find a Vienna horn, bassoon, harp, and four violins, all of which are centered on a cello.
All Austrian Philharmonic Coins are produced by the Austrian Mint. The mint was founded in 1194 by Duke Leopold V and today is the official sovereign mint of Austria. A subsidiary of the National Bank of Austria, it is responsible for the production of Austrian euros as well for the Eurozone economy.
